notmovingpictures Episode 063: Vacation You Say?

So I lied, I wasn't able to sit down with my brother-in-law after all and it's another solo episode. Sue me. I'm at the point where I believe it'll happen when it's supposed to happen and not a minute before. In the meantime here's me talking about the resistance I've been feeling and Steven Pressfield and a sudden inspiration for me to write issue three of Exercising Demons. Eventually of course. Oh yeah, I went on vacation, lost my keys and cracked the screen on my phone twice. All true.

Okay so it's a day late but I have an excuse. I was on vacation, lost my keys, had a sunburn plus dealing with a throat infection and the list goes on. At least I have a heavy episode to help get my emotions in line. That's gotta count for something.

Zine Nation Review Issue Two Of Exercising Demons

Earlier today I got news of a pleasant surprise. The last time I reviewed some zines for zine nation I sent them a copy of issue two of my zine Exercising Demons and it now has been reviewed on their site. The review is very kind indeed to my eyes and has now brought what was a simmering desire to write another issue into a full blown inferno. I've left things undone for far too long. First I need to finish my review of the last batch of zines that were sent to me and submit it and then I can concentrate on issue three.




It's been known to my mind what the subject will be even as though I wondered if I should write that topic. I can't wait to get going. So for now how about following the link (so that their site gets the traffic) and scroll down a little to read what someone else says about my writing skills or lack thereof. http://bit.ly/2tYYTr2 Come on, it's time better spent than on another of those boring "What 80s band would you be" tests or their like on Facebook. Help ,me out here.

Photo Album: The Supersuckers @ The Shrine, Tulsa




Here's a somewhat murky shot of The Supersuckers who played at the venue Shrine here in Tulsa on December 16th, 2016. It was a raucous, energetic show and a nice early Christmas gift to me, from me.

notmovingpictures Episode 062: Tough Guys

As I listened to a podcast interview of Kevin Cronin it made me realize that Hi Infidelity was the first full rock lp that I can remember owning so I talk about that and Mira Sorvino. Listen and you will understand why. Oh and the band whose name I couldn't remember was Survivor.

notmovingpictures Episode 061: Who Was Your First?

Listening to the latest episode of Henry Rollins podcast (Henry and Heidi) got me thinking and that inspired this episode. First up I talk about who the first band I saw was and then who my first "real" concert was. There is a difference. Then it's on to who my son has chosen his first "real" concert to be. Hint, looking like Deep Purple and Alice Cooper. Understand though that he has been in the presence of musicians plying their trade before. There are various other musical meanderings muttered by me so take a listen and enjoy.
